I have owned two of these hats. After the first one wore down, I immediately bought another.The hat is cool in the summer and surprising warm in the winter down to about 25F. If I am outside, I wear the hat. I use it for running, climbing, skiing, hiking...you name it.The hat is extremely light and folds up nicely, which is a plus if you are climbing.I travel extensively and found that it makes the perfect traveling companion on flights, because I can fold it up and put it in my carry-on or even back pocket.The only problem I have had with the hat is durability. Both of the hats separated where the bill meets the hat. Although, I think the damage is more a function of me folding the bill into the hat when storing it.

I bought the OR Sun Runner and was really happy with it at first. It really protects the major part of my face from the sun, which is great and different from most other sun-protective headwear including wide-brimmed hats. However, the mesh-panels on the sides of the cap are basically "sunburn-portals". I have a slight receding hairline above the temples and with many caps, including this one, I get sunburned due to the side mesh-panels they feature. The same would happen for anyone with a short haircut. For a hat that is specifically supposed to provide bomb-proof sun protection, this is an absolute no-go! I'm really disappointed about this major design flaw, especially as I don't think the mesh-panels provide a lot of ventilation anyway. I would like to love the sun runner, but in its current state, it only works for hairy heads.

Not a great helmet

By

This hat works great for most standard face-shading uses (lightweight, comfortable, extra long bill, great breath-ability and good wicking) but it is absolutely terrible at withstanding the impact of a 300lb+ chunk of rock falling from ~25 meters above it. As such, I would not recommend using this hat as a helmet substitution. Thank goodness that the hat was laying on the ground and not on my head when this product shortfall was discovered! Upon direct impact of the rock, the cap sustained severe damage to the mesh, bill and metal clip for attaching the neck protector. Surprisingly, the elastic band remained completely intact and the hat is still wearable, save for a gaping hole in the left side. Again, I do not recommend this cap be used in place of a helmet. For the sake of your brain matter, use the hat only for sun protection and not also rock protection.

Perfect!

Bought this for a 2 week trip to the Virgin Islands this past spring and for kayak trips under the summer sun. Haven't used it yet for kayak trips but I expect it to perform as well as it did hiking in the hot sun of the Caribbean. Often I used just the hat with the sun shade in my pocket. The sun shade packs down super small so I had no problem bringing it along even if I wasn't sure I would use it. On really sunny days I attached it quick and easy-like to the hat and protected my ears and neck from the pounding sun. The hat is nice and breathable and even somewhat stylish!

A hat, you say?

I am a self-professed gear freak. I own every commercially available brand of high-end outdoor gear, (except Mammut, and I'm still shopping for the perfect Mammut piece), and I have a lot of great kit. And I use it all. But I can say unequivocally, that this OR hat is the most versatile piece of gear I own. Rain or shine, hot or cold, with or without the Pharaoh neck attachment, it is literally the only piece of gear I own, that I use every single day. And I have done this for 5 years without the slightest problem. This is more than just a hat. It is protection for the part of my body that is exposed more than any other - my face. It works.

I recently returned from some exploratory mountaineering in Garwhal Himalaya where I protected myself from the intense UV rays with your Sun Runner Cap or SPF 50. An excellent bit of kit that did exactly what I bought it for however I have one comment/ suggestion regarding its design. The skirt (that was pretty much worn during daylight hours) may benefit from an adjustable cord at the back rather than the elastic strip. I confess I have a larger than average head but when the elastic was fully extended it still felt tight and often gave me a headache. Not ideal at altitude!

It is the best beach running or walking hat ever with the neck cape being able to be worn several ways, or not at all. It is easy to install or de-install the cape and this hat looks very cool in a funtional way. So many people want to know where I got it. It is, also my favorie golf hat, with and without using the neck protecting sun cape. Can't say enough about this hat. I am ordering another .

This gives excellent sun protection for head and neck that you can't get with even with wide-brim hats (especially the nape). If the extra detachable cover is wrapped around the face even the cheeks are protected. It turns into a nice and stylish looking cap without the drape.

I bought this hat to replace the Nike Runner hat I'd washed and accidentally shrunk in the clothes drier. I wear the Sun Runner hat for trail runs, half-marathan training, backpacking, and spring backcountry ski touring. I've realized I only need one hat with all the features this cap comes with.
